Concerto Cigars has announced it will be partnering with Tabacalera G. Kafie y Cia to produce the RTB Cigar line – a brand named company owner Ronald Thomas Brown.

Concerto Cigars launched in 2015. The cigar landed a footprint in the Southeast U.S. in the Charlotte, North Carolina region where Brown is based. The line was produced in the U.S., but after hitting limitations with tobacco availability and production efficiencies, Brown moved production to Tabacalera G. Kafie y Cia.

“We’re honored to have Ron Brown join our factory, we feel that his special gifts and qualities really marry well with our family owned approach to making boutique cigars. At Tabacalera G. Kafie y Cia, we treat everyone like family. We all help each other to ensure each others success.” states Dr. Gaby Kafie in a press release.

Given Brown’s background as a composer, arranger, and percussionist, the brand’s two blend names will have a musical inspirations – Aria and Finale. Aria (which is a musical term to refer to the beginning) features a cloud-grown Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper while Finale (which is a musical term to deceive the climax) features a Cuban Seed Maduro wrapper. Both cigars come in one size – a 6 x 52 Toro with each presented in 10-count boxes. Pricing is set at $10.00 MSRP.
